Carnival Story


Published 1957
Topics Drama, Anne Baxter


A young girl (Anne Baxter) runs away and joins with a travelling carnival troupe in Colonia (Germany),the American-owned circus in all its beautiful sadness in the setting.
She is enamored by her employer (Steve Cochran) and is hired by the ringmaster (J.C.Flippen).
Later she is contracted by a sault artist (Lyle Bettger),he teaches her the leap routine and soon becomes its main attraction but he has a somersault accident.
Anne Baxter as an aerial acrobat dropping to swimming pool is interested in both men.
The film is a melodramatic and romantic tale with the classic triangular love story through European tour meshing the drama with events offstage.
The movie is wrought with romance and glamour but is a simple and tragic story of a scheming young girl and the men of whom she takes advantage.

Reviewer: Dr Feel Rotten - - January 27, 2011
Subject: Poor Grobo
I knew Grobo was going to be the one who killed Joe. I knew that the first time he kissed Anne Bancroft at the wedding announcement and who wouldn't? Anne was one hot little number! If she were the same star today she would be THE hottest number on screen.. Anne Bancroft was a swell actress and stacked like a brick ..well you know what kind of house. LOL
